Poetry: “Ode to plants”

The planet needs them, we need them.

***~***~***~***

Ode to plants

I worship thee plants
With your intricate makeup
The great adaptations
That suit you fantastic

Your xylem and phloem
Directional transport
The tissues that pump
All your “blood” through your “bones”

Mesophyll wonder
Where the magic all happens
The cells taking sunlight
To make your energy

Voluminous vacuoles
Storage of liquid
The pressure essential
To keep you all rigid

Stamen and pistill
Your fine reproduction
The wondrous structure
Of every leaf there

All of those things
The trademarks of plant life
I take it all in
And admire you more
